<< they shot her brother 7 times in the head ... >>
Only flaw with that fine tale is that after shot one there was no more head!
If this guy "disposed" of the bodies, why do the relatives control them? I suspect he helped with the clean up, but this article indicates he was not present, and could not have witnessed the incident. IOW, he could know there were lots of bodies, but not a have any first hand information about what happened, or who killed the Iraqis whose bodies he "disposed of". Since the article indicates that he was ordered to take pictures and then to turn them over to the Navy, that doesn't sound like much of a cover up by the Marines who were there, as soon as the day after the incident.
I was there and can verify your statement. We never knew, until after the facts, who was who, and who wasn't. Always on guard and always watching was our motto, and I'm sure the Marines involved in this operation felt the same way. I cannot believe the Marine Corps General out in San Diego relieving his officers two months after the fact with his B.S. findings. Is it no wonder we are still tying our military's hands behind their backs with a$$kissers like that General? In my book, he should be relieved, not the Captains.
sorry about that post #185 to the wrong recipient.
